How To Make Drawers in SketchUp 2021 | Woodworkers

In Part 5 of the SketchUp Series, I build on what was discussed in the previous tutorials and start constructing the drawer within the table.

When designing the online course, Matt wanted to make it as close as possible to his own experience learning at Rycotewood Furniture Centre in Oxford. Primarily, by providing a structured course that anyone can follow, without having to find their own way through an arbitrary list of videos on YouTube.

  1. A free workaround to the solid tools is the right click>intersect with selection/model : select interlocking objects and select that tool : it will create lines along all intersecting planes, then clean up any leftovers.

  2. 11:40. Ok, about blue and sand faces. Blue indicates that this is the inner side of the plane, i.e. one that should always face inward. The sand color shows the outer sides of the planes. Any closed geometric volume must have only sandy planes. Conversely, if you place the camera inside the body, then you should only see the blue colored surface. This is necessary in order for the computer to correctly interpret geometric shapes as a solids. This is necessary for 3D printing, milling on CNC machines, as well as visualization in third-party applications. (sometimes on rendered images instead of blue planes you will just see holes in the surface). So, I recommend keeping a close eye on the surface of your item to be free of blue planes. If you see them, then just move the mouse arrow to the correctly oriented sand-colored plane, right-click and select Orient faces.

  3. 10:15. The disappearing face is due to ctrl+pull to create the shoulder line. Hence inverted faces (that appear blue/grey instead of white). I've recently discovered this will cause an issue if wanting to 3D print from a sketchup file : these faces will not be recognised by the printing software, will see it as an "open" volume. Fiddly fix : select inverted faces, right click and pick "reverse faces" to flip them back around. But other than 3D printing, just hide reverse faces with textures!

  4. 10:38. You don't need to make symmetrical wall unique, you can keep them as two associated components, all you have to do is choose one of them, take transform tool and turn this wall inside out (just type -1 as transformation ratio).

  5. Thanks for video Matt, but… you're wrong. You don't need paper drawing, because can change a quantity of tails and a distance between them in one single operation. Just make a component out a first tail, then copy it to the position where the last tail should be, then type /n command, where n is a number of steps. And if you don't happy with quantity, just re-type /n command, or change a size of one tail component, and all of them will change as well. (Sorry for my English, it's not my native language, I hope you'll understand me)
